The Octagon House: an iconic local landmark home now available for sale for the first time in 35 years, when it was essentially rebuilt from the ground up. More recently, in the 1990s, a 400-SF fully-equipped efficiency apartment was added above the garage, and in 2016 a 17' x 14' pool house with an in-ground Endless Pool was added. County square footage does not include the apartment, the measurements for which--for the purposes of this listing--are identified as "Quad/4th Level." Extremely thoughtful and symmetrical, versatile floor plan, landscaping, & brickwork, including french drains. Slate entry & hearths. 4 porches: wraparound veranda, screened back porch leading to the pool house, and back kitchen service porch with walk-out "Rapunzel Balcony" above. Lots of custom built-ins & stained glass. All new roof & gutters in 2015. Truly a premier property, in a prime location within 2 blocks of downtown Yellow Springs, near the public library, the College, the Bikepath, & the Glen.
Discovered around 1800, Yellow Springs became a major Midwestern attraction for those seeking its 'curative' waters. For over 100 years the town was a popular health resort serving travelers on the stagecoach road nearby.
